Rubber Tensile Testing Machine Setup

Tensile testing of thin metallic specimens such as aluminum foil may be performed using the test procedures specified in ASTM E8 and other relevant standards; however, due to the fragile state of the thin test strip a conventional extensometer may put unnecessary stress on the sample and cause premature failure. To avoid this error it is recommended that a non contacting extensometer be used.
